The Peacehaven & Telscombe FC Community Academy is set to launch on Tuesday September 19 at the Unibet Arena.
The Community Academy is being launched to run as extra training for local children in the area.
Training will primarily be taken by two familiar faces at the club. The first is UEFA B coach Tony Coade who has been a regular face in and around the club for the past five and a half years. And the other coach will be Peacehaven & Telscombe FC first team manager Mark Shutt.
The sessions will be open to all ages and abilities and will cost just £15 per month per child.
Mark Shutt said: "This is a really exciting project for everyone at the club. We will be offering additional training opportunities for youngsters in the community." "The Academy will run alongside the training they already receive from the managers of their respective age groups.”
He continued: “Tony and I will be providing a safe environment for your youngsters to develop their existing skills and to help them learn new ones."
Steve Davies the club’s youth chairman added: "What our Academy will do is make sure that we are offering affordable extra training." "We are aware that an increasing number of our youth players have been invited to attend academies and development centres provided by multi-national companies to premier league club development centres.”
He continued: “By launching our own Academy, we will be able to provide the youth of the community with better value, local and arguably in many cases, better coaching than can be offered elsewhere."
Below is the timetable for the first week:
Tuesday September 19: U7 and U8’s - 5pm-6pm.
Wednesday September 20: U9s and U10s - 4.30pm -5.30pm. U11s and U12s: 5.30pm -6.30pm.
